In conjunction with the exhibit Fragments, we present Yale Strom’s 1996 documentary feature Carpati: 50 Miles, 50 Years, a powerful film about the remaining Jewish community living in a small town in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine. In 1931 the Jewish community of the Carpathian region (then in Czechoslovakia, today Ukraine) numbered a quarter of a million Jews. Today sixty-five years later there are fewer than 1,500. This beautiful and moving documentary, narrated by Leonard Nimoy, presents the rich Jewish culture that once thrived in the Carpathian Mountains.
“Bittersweet and poignant…” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

Jewish community of Beregovo, Ukraine.”
